Woman in her 30s stabbed to death in Brixton

Two people were stabbed to death in separate attacks in London within 40 minutes of each other while a third stabbing incident left a man critically injured, police said.

He died later in the evening.

A 34-year-old woman was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder.

Speaking of the Brixton stabbing, a Met Police spokesman told Sky News: "Officers attended, along with London's Air Ambulance".

Meanwhile a woman in her 20s is being held over the killing of Mr Nicolaie in Colindale. Next of kin are aware.

The victim was rushed to a hospital with wounds considered serious but not life-threatening, according to the Nagaoka Police Station.

"Upon arrival, officers observed suspicious circumstances, secured the scene and notified homicide detectives", he said.

The Metropolitan Police say this appears to be a domestic incident, rather than part of a "knife-crime epidemic".

Almost 60 people have been murdered so far in London this year - majority killed with a knife.
